Founded in 1945, by business for business, Henley was the first business school in the UK and is one of the oldest and most respected schools in Europe.
Our impressive full-service portfolio extends from undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes to a world-renowned executive education offering, from cutting-edge research spanning a uniquely broad range of fields to specialist consultancy services.
One of the very few business schools worldwide to hold triple-accredited status from the major UK, European and US awarding bodies (AMBA, EQUIS, AACSB), we are also the world's third largest provider of MBA education and home to the world-ranked Henley MBA.
The School represents the largest unit within the University of Reading.
